Hope in the Future

Hope in the Future is an invitation from Bishop John Arnold, to every parish in the Diocese of Salford to recognise and develop their missionary identity and their call to evangelise.

You can find full details of the Hope in the Future project on the Diocese of Salford website. Click here .

First and foremost this process needs to be rooted in prayer and sustained by prayer which is why we are encouraged to pray for the guidance of the Holy Spirit. There is a particular novena as a resource to help us do this.

Hope in the Future, builds on Faith in the Future. The theme of Hope which is key to the catechesis of Pope Francis.

This is a 5 stage journey and we are currently in Stage 1 – Celebrating our Giftedness.

In order to do this we have produced our first Hope in the Future Parish Booklet, celebrating the wonderful gifts and talents shared by our parishioners through our Parish ministries.
